PROGRAM NOTE
A modern myth or legend. Director Vimukthi Jayasundara interprets current Sri Lanka by comparing it to mythology. Halfway through the film, two fishermen discuss a legend about two kinds who execute all the young men in their country to kill the prince who is a threat to them. Although this is only a legend, it is a story about a horrible massacre. Today, a similar situation permeates Sri Lanka, no, actually all parts of the world experience this. A young man who falls from the sky leaves the city rampant with violence to the countryside, but all able bodied men have disappeared. The situation in the legend continues to this day. Even though the young man fell from the sky, he cannot save anyone and must continue to run away. The ending of the legend is not expressed, but surely, the prince survives, kills the tyrant king and becomes a respected king. But in the reality within the film, the young man hides inside a tree and becomes one with the tree. Thus reality and legend is strangely conjoined in [Between Two Worlds].
